I can bearly believe it!

Today was nature day I tell ya! This morning I looked out the bathroom window at the cabin and right there...stretched out was a three foot rattlesnake (I think...not positive... it may have been a bull snake)...I'm not posting the picture because snakes are creeeepyyyyy. I opened the window and snapped some shots. If anybody wants to see them just ask and I'll post....ewwwww.
Then a golden eagle swooped down at the puppy when she was out in the yard! Yiiikes.
On my drive home I had to stop for a quail and five little chicks who were standing in the road...it took them quite a while to move, I hope they smarten up and stop playing in the street.

And thennnn....the grand finale. I was minding my own business driving home and lookey here who I saw! My oh my...I was so excited. I flipped a u-turn...pulled up alongside the bear to snap a photo and oooppppsss....the dog went crazy! The bear gave us that Pacino look "You talkin' to me?" I wanted to get a better shot but decided I had better move along, my car has a soft top and if that bear wanted to it could rip it open in one swipe.
What a fun nature day.

Wow! What a treat for your camera. I am glad you were sensible, stayed in the car, and left when the bear started looking at ya all grumpy-like. I'm double glad you got a great photo first!

I'm just shaking my head in amazement. That stuff never happens her to us city folk!

Yikes! I have been freaked out all weekend about a bear attack (Archer is camping at Baker Lake w/ my family!)...I so didn't need to see that! :) However, I am glad it was a bear picture and not a snake picture - I don't think I could come back here knowing a snake was lurking! eeewwww....
